Norwegian Gem review

Sail Date: April 30, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My partner and I were not thrilled with the cruise. The activities the cruise has aligned for were of no interest to us with the exception of the gym, art auction, theater, and the bar/lounges.


The disembarkation on the last day was a nightmare as people packed the area to exit. There was lack of coordination and organization to direct people to lines in order to exit in an orderly fashion. We were very disappointed about this as tension felt among passengers from different ethnic backgrounds that could have easily started a fight/insults. It felt more like "you took our money so what do you care now." Sad


We found more rewarding the "Resort for a Day" promotion as we were able to get away from the crowd and enjoy peace and quiet at the resort beach.
